[impatient? the downloads are here...]
Debugger too unfriendly?
DDT too complex? (or you don't have the DDE?)
Fear not - for maybe BreakAid can help?
If this screenshot makes sense to you - perhaps BreakAid can add to your debugging arsenal?
It's simple. Call
XBreakAid_Attach to set up the system, then if that didn't return an error (implying BreakAid is loaded), call
OS_BreakPt. At that point, BreakAid will step in and examine and change some things. It isn't designed to be a debugger, it is designed to let you look at the things you may want to look at while working through some problematic code.
What this software works upon
In case the screenshots weren't a give-away, this software is for use with RISC OS. It won't work with Apple iThingies, Windows, Ubuntu, Android phones, your granny's microwave, etc etc.
It will work with:
- A machine running RISC OS 5 - Beagleboard, Pandaboard, the Pi family, Titanium, etc.
- Requires a 32 bit version of RISC OS. It won't work on 26 bit builds.
- Your program must be running in USR mode, debugging SVC mode is not possible (translation: normal apps good, modules not so good).
- While BreakAid technically can be used with BASIC, it's a bit like getting into a car chase with a milk float - possible, doable, but really rather stupid. So... just don't. BASIC doesn't work like that.
